More about Nimboo Bar & Restaurant, Nottingham

The man in charge in the kitchen is Indian master chef Muninder Kumar, formerly of the Taj and Hyatt hotels in India and now thankfully quite at home in Beeston. Fans of real deal Indian food flock to Nimboo Indian Bar & Restaurant from all over Nottingham for its bold approach to traditional Indian cuisine – the restaurant’s unassuming premises down Villa Street belie the treasure that lies within, not least being a warm welcome and its surprisingly spacious, TARDIS-like interior, complete with well-stocked bar.

Truer to tradition than most Nottingham Indian restaurants, Nimboo Indian Bar & Restaurant’s list of vegetarian starters keeps pace with its meaty counterpart in terms of options. Go for the puri hot channa, chickpeas tossed with a blend of spices and served on puri bread, or the chilli mogo, cassava chips tossed in a homemade chilli tomato sauce, before tackling the highly recommended sharing platters for two: the Maharaja platter offers paneer tikka, onion bhaji, spring rolls and veggie samosa, while the Shahi sizzler presents a selection of tandoori delights like chicken tikka, sheekh and hariyali kebabs, and lamb chops. The seafood platter is just as lavish with a bounty of Amritsari-style fish, tandoori’d king prawns, salmon tikka and more. While the main courses cover all the usual bases plus that little bit extra, Beeston’s secret weapon when it comes to dining has some unique dishes up its sleeve courtesy of the experienced head chef. Our pick is the murgh khaas korma, delicate as a korma should be but given the royal treatment with a sauce infused with rose petals and sandalwood.

Meal great, service very good and helpful. The restaurant was quite possibly due the the snowfall as most of beeston empty. I have difficulties with some foods and they were extremely helpful. will definitely be going again.

Very friendly service and lovely food. I would recommend this restaurant and is a real asset for Beeston. One thing I would say I asked for medium heat on the curry and it was hotter than I would normally eat it but it was lovely. I would ask for mild next time.

Excellent! Fantastic food with great company. Service is brilliant and friendly. Good value! Occasionally the room itself is a bit cold!

The staff seem ill prepared to receive and deal with customers, although friendly. Biryani was ordered to be mild, then after ten minutes a different member of staff advised this could not be done so another main course had to be selected in a rush. The samosas were hard and dry, and the poppadums chewy with inadequate pickles . The main courses were tasty, but a lot of sauce and not much actual content. All the food was only warm and was cold before eaten. Deserts were undergoing a menu change and we were offered a choice of two free of charge. Three of our party selected one of these choices only to be advised they might have one or two and they produced two, which we had to share. overall a very disappointing event.

Third visit to this restaurant. Had made reservation but staff seemed a bit uncertain. Excellent food and good service at table with recommendations and advice from lead waiter. Restaurant was quite cold because of, we learnt, practice of outside door being left open as a welcome but causing a draught. Informed staff and having explained our discomfort some action taken.

Lovely restaurant with great food. Service was also great, had a good laugh with the waiter. You must try the pani puri starter, its a popular indian street food and a lot of fun.

Food was excellent. Service was good, if a little slow. To be fair, we went on Saturday evening and the restaurant was pretty busy. Pity about the raucous mob at the next table - but this is not Nimboo's fault.
